in thread Kindly suggest a good starting point for XML Parsing.

I probably should have put that in code tags instead of using all those &lt, &gt. Sorry.

<foo name=bobby><name>robert</name></foo>

My point is, your foo has two names.

<foo name=bobby><age>27</age></foo>

Also sucks. It's no different from

<foo age=27><name>bobby</name></foo>

Obviously it's different, but not in a truly meaningful way. You could just as easily say

<foo age=27 name=bobby></foo>

or

<foo><age>27</age><name>bobby</name></foo>

    I got it. From this point of view, you are right. You did not mention
    <foo> <name>Robert</name> <name>Bobby</name> </foo>
    But you can view it inside out: data types suck, because they cannot easilly represent XML :-)

      Good point! Very Zen.
